Chain of Responsibility

On 10 February 2014 the Heavy Vehicle National Law 2012 (HVNL) commenced, replacing existing laws governing the operation of all vehicles over 4.5 tonnes gross vehicle mass in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator  (NHVR) was established to administer the HVNL and is now the first point of contact for the majority of your heavy vehicle business. 


About the Chain of Responsibility


Everyone in the supply chain – not just the driver or operator – shares the responsibility for ensuring breaches of road laws do not occur. In addition, corporate entities, directors, partners and managers are accountable for the actions of people under their control. This is the 'chain of responsibility'.

If you exercise (or have the capability of exercising) control or influence over any transport task, you are responsible for ensuring road transport laws are complied with.

Chain of responsibility is similar to the legal concept of ‘duty of care’ that underpins occupational health and safety law. Penalties and sanctions under road transport laws will range from formal warnings to court-imposed fines and penalties. Businesses trying to gain an unfair commercial advantage over competitors by compromising road safety standards can be held liable.

Legal liability applies to all parties for their actions or inactions. For specific queries about how chain of responsibility legislation applies to you, consult a solicitor or the Legal Aid organisation in your state or territory.

NEBCOH can provide audit services for a third party analysis of your organization's operation. This will underpin your organization's requirements for the five core elements (fatigue, speed, vehicle mass, vehicle dimension & load security) of Chain of Responsibility.


ISO 9001-2008

The aim of ISO 9001 is to prove that an organisation meets its own internal standards for quality, and that these in turn meet international standards.

It is based on eight quality management principles which provide a structured yet flexible framework for ensuring your processes consistently meet the needs of your customers. NEBCOH can provide audit services for this standard.

The checklist below (example) will assist in the process of ISO9001 analysis:

  • Have you identified your core business processes and defined how they are operated and controlled?
  • Do the core processes have measurements applied to them and are they regularly analysed?
  • If you outsource work that could affect product or service quality, have you defined how this will be controlled?
  • Do you have a documented Quality Policy and have you defined how it is reviewed?
  • Are the Quality objectives defined in a way that can be measured?
  • Do you have a Quality Manual that covers the requirements defined in the standard?
  • Do you have procedures for the control of documents and records?
  • Do you have evidence of management commitment to the quality system and is top management actively involved in continually improving system effectiveness through management reviews?
  • Has management defined as part of the business strategy the activities that are critical to meeting customer requirements?
  • Has a management representative been appointed with responsibility for the management system?
  • Have you defined the frequency and method of carrying out management reviews of the system
